All around us there are wild plants useful for food, medicine, and clothing, but most of us don’t know how to identify or use them. Delena Tull amply supplies that knowledge in this book, which she has now expanded to more thoroughly address plants found in New Mexico and Arizona, as well as Texas.

Extensively illustrated with black-and-white drawings and color photos, this book includes the following special features:

  • Recipes for foods made from edible wild plants
  • Wild teas and spices
  • Wild plant dyes, with instructions for preparing the plants and dying wool, cotton, and other materials
  • Instructions for preparing fibers for use in making baskets, textiles, and paper
  • Information on wild plants used for making rubber, wax, oil, and soap
  • Information on medicinal uses of plants
  • Details on hay fever plants and plants that cause rashes
  • Instructions for distinguishing edible from poisonous berries
  • Detailed information on poisonous plants, including poison ivy, oak, and sumac, as well as herbal treatments for their rashes

About the Author:

Delena Tull is an environmental science educator and naturalist. A twenty-year resident of central Texas, she holds a Ph.D. in science education from the University of Texas at Austin.

Review:

"When it comes to native plants in the area, there are just a few ways to be sure you're not ingesting a poisonous berry. Take Edible and Useful Plants with you on your next ranch visit...the latest revised edition of Edible delves into plant-based recipes, teas, spices and medicinals. An environmental science educator and naturalist, Tull spends 300 pages on the family varieties of plants, and also includes several pages of color photography that point out toxic greens and edible bits. Part-field guide, part-textbook, this book is meant for hands-on use. Recipe buffs can partake in jelly-making (she points out edible fruits while breaking down the jelly process for each). Look for recipes for pesto, dyes and walnut-tofu "meatballs." Chapter 3 on teas and spices would be useful for any tea fanactic aching to try new, local flavors. Tull also gives plenty of warnings against excessive use of any plant. Remember, moderation is key." - Jessica Elizarraras, San Antonio Current
